Natural Colored Fillings
Welcome to Albany Dental Group where what we do will make you smile.
Many people have grown accustomed to the amalgam fillings which can be splattered silver fillings in our teeth. Utilizing a composite white filling we can color your fillings to match the natural color of your teeth making them virtually undetectable. If you have cavities and you still want to be able to smile with confidence, know we can provide the most natural look possible.
The composite white filling can be made in smaller lots, meaning we take less of the tooth, less drilling for a whiter more natural result. While the composite fillings provide support to the tooth structure you will also have less sensitivity to temperature fluctuations.
The entire process can be completed in one day. The first step is to remove the decay from the tooth. The selected tooth will have a gel and a bonding agent etched on. Bonding can also be used on teeth that are cracked or stained. The composite resin in then molded to your tooth. Then we focus an intense light ray for about sixty seconds until the material hardens. The resin is then trimmed and polished. The procedure is now complete and you have your beautiful natural smile back again.
